Supporting the next-gen sea heroes

In collaboration with the Navy Cadet Association, we have created an exclusive navy rum blend. A part of the sales profit goes to the association and the upcoming sea heroes. 

We celebrate new and existing heroes

Navy Cadet Association

For centuries, the Danish navy and Danish naval officers have safeguarded Denmark’s security. To honor these numerous famous and unknown Danish sea heroes, we have created our exclusive navy rum blend, Naval Cadet.

A career as a navy officer with many months a year at sea means opting out of many other things. It’s one thing to be able to handle the crew on one of the Navy’s vessels, it’s another to be able to navigate long distance relationships, which for many naval officers a little too often end up in stormy weather.

A.H. Riise Royal Danish Navy Naval Cadet is made in collaboration with the cadets at the Navy Officers’ School. It is with pride that A.H. Riise with this blend supports Denmark’s future naval officers’ historical tradition of creating security for all of us at sea as well as on land.

“For centuries, the Danish navy and Danish naval officers have safeguarded Denmark’s security and played an important role in keeping our communities safe.  We are proud to support the Navy Cadet Association’s important work, and we thank all A.H. Riise fans who have bought Navy Cadet and contributed to the noble cause”, says Jonas Nilsson.

Being a part of the Naval history

In June 1838, the Danish Government officially granted Albert Heinrich Riise the exclusive right to establish a pharmacy on the island of Saint Thomas in the Danish West Indies. The rights included the production of alcohol-based medicines and tonics in his pharmacy. A. H. Riise soon began distilling rum and experimenting with flavours. The strong, sweet liquor became the start of a close connection to the Danish navy. Not only did A.H. Riise become the supplier of navy rum to the fleet in West India. Stored in old oak barrels, the golden drops were also shipped back to Copenhagen by the navy, where they were kept securely under navy guard. A.H. Riise continues to celebrate its connection with the Danish navy. Even today, officers who have successfully undergone their training celebrate their “passing out” with a couple of tots of A.H. Riise Royal Danish Navy.
